Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara levelled an allegation at SLC Secretary at the media briefing convened at the BIA on Tuesday afternoon.

Mahela Jayawardene expressed the following views.

“ I am disappointed with the response he gave without making inquiries. We are saddened that executive officials of Sri Lanka Cricket went to their media institutions and made statements about us without making inquiries from us first.”

Kumar Sangakkara also expressed views on the issue.

“What I have to say is all that Mahela had to say. I said that this was my final World T20 in response to a question posed to me by the Island newspaper. While we answered questions that we were asked, neither Mahela nor I convened a media briefing and made such a statement. I am in full agreement with what Mahela said. Fortunately, I believe, we were able to discuss the matter directly with the Chairman of the Selection Committee Sanath Jayasuriya. And I believe that at the time he and the two of us understood what had actually transpired here.”
